Valentine’s Candy Chocolate Bark

Valentine’s Candy Chocolate Bark

For some of you who care, Valentine’s Day is pretty close. And though I like my fare share of romantic comedies and believe in real life romance and magic, on a day to day basis, too, I only join the V-Day craze for the candy and the chocolates, natrually… #guilty. Hey, what? I’ve already got my...

Christmas Cream Puffs with Vanilla & Cranberry

Christmas Cream Puffs with Vanilla & Cranberry

Last weekend I was in a bit of a cooking (and eating…) daze, all the time. We had our parents visiting for lunch on Saturday, which means we were prepping well into Friday night (or Saturday morning, if you like). I love to host guests for a festive, pre-christmas get-together, well before the actual Holiday...

Mulled Wine Gingerbread Bundt Cake

Mulled Wine Gingerbread Bundt Cake

  Normally, I’d be working on putting together The List for my Seasonal Bucket List – but this year, it just feels like we’re still so far away from Winter and The Holidays… Or maybe this year just went too fast? It sure was an eventful on. Normally, by this time, I’d be well into...

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Challah Buns

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Challah Buns

Remember when I recently showed you the Apple Fritters my friend and I made one random Saturday? Well, there were Apple Fritters – and then there were these darlings here: Chocolate Chip Challah Buns. With honey inside. And sweet and salty sprinkles. Doughy and nice. Very fluffy. In one word: heaven in a Bun. Well,...

Moelleux au Chocolat – Lava Cakes

Moelleux au Chocolat – Lava Cakes

There’s something about chocolate that always makes me see the output (read: the chocolatey goodness i just created) in a monochromatic way. Why? Because the Black and White scenes offset the chocolate’s beautiful, luscious dark, chocolatey brown even more. What normally appears to be just a dark brown color shines even more on an otherwise bland black...

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

Some might associate spring or summer with the loveliest flowers, but for me it’s always been Fall…  Just look at those mighty Sunflowers! Huge! And right in front of my mom’s house, in the middle of the city, on an underestimated little field. The abundance of flowerful colors – Sunflowers but also Dahlias and those...

Wild Blueberry Galette & Fishing in Finland

Wild Blueberry Galette & Fishing in Finland

“Gone fishing in the middle of nowhere” – how does this status update sound to you? It was what we actually and honestly did this summer during one blissful week: Fishing in Finland. Looking at the pictures now i feel a pang of longing.

Chococo Popsicles

Chococo Popsicles

Summer isn’t all but gone yet – despite the much chillier mornings and nights – but i’m already craving darker, moodier, more comfort oriented foods. If only for the looks. And what better to fulfill this mood than dark, intense, naughty chocolate? [gap height=”20″]

Simple Apricot Tarte with Tonka

Simple Apricot Tarte with Tonka

Hi, dears, while you read this, I’m definitely away on my little vacay. Probably fishing. Or picking blueberries. Somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Finland. Blissful vacation. Clearing my mind. Meanwhile, back here on F&F, I have a lot of catching up to do… With recipes.

Flaky, Buttery Scones

Flaky, Buttery Scones

To start things off: I’m really sorry – crushed, actually – for that long absence from F&F! It’s been too long (you can tell this by spotting the peonies, who are clearly not late summer flowers, ahem… still very pretty though, and a shame to waste a perfectly good picture). Uncharacteristically, I’ve neglected this space...
